CNN Joins the Tea Party?

I just completed and published a new video, CNN Joins the Tea Party? While America was focused on the push to pass health care reform, CNN pulled a fast one. They hired Erick Erickson, the owner of Redstate.com, a blog that supports and encourages the Tea Party activists and their revolution. He wasn’t just hired to give an opinion as we see with most political advisors on cable news. Erickson will be appearing on John King’s USA show on a daily basis. Fortunately, because of the Tea Party unrest we’ve been witnessing over the past couple of weeks, CNN has been easing Erickson into the show, at least until the tensions die down. We’d like to put a stop to CNN’s efforts to legitimize the Tea Party and giving it a national microphone on a major cable news network.

If you Twitter on a regular basis, then you know my good friend Shoq who is a leader of the progressive dialogue there. He helped me produce this video to bring attention to what CNN has done, and educate people about Erick Erickson’s agenda.

Shoq’s blog offers many links to stories published about Erick Erickson and his owners. There’s also a link to the efforts on Facebook to “Dump CNN” or, you can write CNN and ask what they were thinking when they decided to hire this schmuck: John King, USA Feedback

Thanks for participating in this pushback!

UPDATE: Erickson’s Weak Sauce Defense of his words
